What If You Feel Really Challenged To Write Quality Content For Your Blog Even Though You’re An Expert In Your Field?
I’ve just enjoyed reading Content Rules: How to Create Killer Blogs, Podcasts, Videos, Ebooks, Webinars (and More) That Engage Customers and Ignite Your Business (New Rules Social Media Series) by Ann Handley and C.C. Chapman with David Meerman Scott writing the forward.
A very easy to read resource (I’m into Kindle versions these days), this book gives great encouragement and practical tips to new business bloggers plus more advanced strategies for the old hands.
If you want help with a blogging as marketing strategy, this book is a great place to start.
